Charles Krauthammer Slams State Department Apology, Obama Disavows Cairo Apology … Who is in Charge as Embassy’s are Under Attack?

 

The Incredible Shrinking Foreign Policy President … Where is President Barack Obama? How can the Commander in Chief  the President of the United States be so far in the rear on such a foreign policy tragedy? Once again, leading from behind. This is what happens when one continuously apologizes … no one respects it.

The following is the original US State Department press release apology following the attacks of US Embassy’s in Cairo, Egypt. What, the state department is apologizing for anti-Muslim activity in the United States while US Embassy’s are being attacked, what could be considered an act of war? Instead the Obama State Department attacks “Freedom of Speech” and apologizes to Islamists who attacked US Embassy’s. UNREAL.

The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims – as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions. Today, the 11th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States, Americans are honoring our patriots and those who serve our nation as the fitting response to the enemies of democracy. Respect for religious beliefs is a cornerstone of American democracy. We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others.

Does some one need to tell the state department that the right to free speech is to have the right to say something that is so offensive and vile that it offends others, yet the US Constitution allows one the right to say it? That is the very essence of Freedom of Speech.

Krauthammer Slams Embassy Statement In Egypt

Charles Krathammer on Fox News says that the apology is a disgrace and an embarrassment. He called it a hostage statement. The apology comes on all days is on 9-11? Krauthammer said that there should have been no apology, the State department should have told the protesters to “Go to Hell”. The protesters should apologize for storming a US Embassy.

The Obama administration now disavows Cairo apology. Huh? How was the original statement allowed to be released if it was not backed by the Obama White House? How could such a foreign policy issue become such a convoluted mess? As reported at the Jawa Report, the White House has thrown itself under the bus and disavows the apology. Who is in charge?

The Obama administration is disavowing a statement from its own Cairo embassy that seemed to apologize for anti-Muslim activity in the United States.

“The statement by Embassy Cairo was not cleared by Washington and does not reflect the views of the United States government,” an administration official told POLITICO.

The U.S. embassy in Cairo put out a statement early Tuesday that apologized for an anti-Muslim film being circulated by an Israeli-American real estate developer.

“The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims – as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions,” the embassy said in a statement published online.

This comes on the foot heals of Obama and his minions touting his foreign policy expertise at the DNC convention. Because Obama really looks like he is leading as our US Embassy’s are under attack and American diplomats are murdered. As Weasel Zippers states, this really is the “gang that could not shoot straight” and now instead of Americans being forced out of work with inept economic policies, we have Americans murdered in our Embassy.

      I thought the twitter message came first and the attack happened later that day.

      Also, is it attacking the freedoom of speech to say that they don’t agree with people harassing another religion?

      Just because I can go out and say that muslims are stupid and Muhammed was a twat doesn’t mean that I should, nor that people is wrong in disagreeing with me.

      Using a tragedy to score political points is going to backfire.Did you see the smirk on Mitts face?Lets get the facts straight before we judge.There was a rocket attack and it was condemned by the Libyan government who lost control of the situation.They took him to a hospital and he died.There were people trying to help him.The Libyan government has apologized to the United States.I know you are excited that Americans died because it might help your guy but this is no time to celebrate.

      Barry’s probably wishing he would have attended a few more of those intellegence meetings now instead of golfing (nahhh not him).

    4. steve on September 12th, 2012 3:15 pm

      Uhhh – that statement was released BEFORE – yes BEFORE the embassy was attacked.

      Further – i guess America DOESN’T support religious tollerance?

      As usual, the ‘right’ needs lies and deception to make it’s case.

    5. steve on September 12th, 2012 3:17 pm

      PS – I bet the same people slamming Obama for being religiously tollerant are the same people who FREAK OUT every year when stores say Happy Holidays instead of Merry Christmas!

      Krauthammer got pretty upset about “Passion of the Christ” Mel Gibson’s film, somehow he felt it gave the impression that the Jews conspired to kill Jesus.

      @1,@2,@4 – Having the facts on your side may be useless when the audience is not interested, unfortunately. :-(

      If only people would simply read the Embassy press release, they would see there is no way to find an apology in those words. Who do they think the apology is being given to? What action is the apology for? Nothing in the press release contains answers to these basic questions.

      Once you learn and accept the timeline, that the statement was before the embassy incident in Cairo, it all falls into place.

      Except for Myth Rummey; who continues to blunder in deeper and deeper. His first instinct to politicize these events before the end of the day on the 9-11 anniversary tells us a great deal about his character. His second instinct to continue to push his crumbling narrative when that is proven to be an untrue telling of the story is all you need to know. His history of bald-faced lying is too deeply part of his personality to avoid such actions.

      Could have been a hold-over from all the lies needed to be successful at Bain, wrecking companies while profiting handsomely.

      Rather than dispute this theme, I’d expect any push-back to deflect and distract by raising non-Romney talking points. Just wait and see!

      SM: Yea, as opposed to your Obama apology talking points, right? Your comment is a bit hypocritical ain’t it?

      Can you say Neville Chamberlain? Do you know who he is? The apology is for the comments of the individual who came out with the anti-Mohammed movie that basically is free speech. But ah poor babies, it upset Muslims. Sorry, but the US Constitution protects free speech, whether you or I agree or disagree with said free speech.

      Hell, i think the burning of the American flag and pornography is pretty repugnant, but its free speech. The only difference is we don;t kill some one when its done. Democrats called GOP individuals Nazi’s at the DNC convention. Pretty sick too, eh?

      Getting back to out boy Neville, you so not appease bullies or terrorists.

      The situation in Egypt or Libya had nothing to do with the BS movie that the State Department was apologizing for. It had all to do with a coordinated effort on 9-11 anniversary.

      No one can explain the Cairo press release and find the phrases that constitute a apology.

      Besides, because of the laws of physics, you can’t issue an apology hours before something actually happens.
      ____________________________
      SM: WTF are you talking about? It was an apology for the so-called anti-Mohammed movie that was insighting the locals. It was a feeble attempt to sooth the savage beasts. Didn’t work, did it.

      Go get your Talking Points and make sure they are correct.

      It was not an apology for the killings or the attack on the embassy, DUH? However, they appeasement comment was left up hours after the attacks on the Embassy in Egypt took place.

      What part about appeasement do you not get? Did you do your homework and learn who Neville Chamberlain was?

      Just so you don’t have to strain yourself, maybe you may want to educate yourself,

      As I said: “no one can . . . find the phrases . . .”

      “The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims—as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions,” it said in a statement. “Respect for religious beliefs is a cornerstone of American democracy. We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others.”

      condemns – not an apology.
      condemn – not an apology.
      Respect – not an apology.
      reject – not an apology.

      So far, I’m correct, because no one has pointed out which phrases constitute an apology.

      BTW- I thought Neville was the one who stood up to Voldemort; wasn’t he?

      #9-SM: This is not about me, obtuse or not. :-(

      I also believe in free speech, and have not disputed this idea.

      As a basic observation; my comment has a reply but not a response (its specific content not discussed). And that’s OK; no-one is forced to speak against their will. It just seems unusual.

      All I know is that my discussion of this post and topic are detailed and clear; their meaning is available to anyone to read and understand.

      Hell, i think the burning of the American flag and pornography is pretty repugnant, but its free speech. … If Romney wins some one the new jobs he creates might be Porn Police… people that enjoy porn might find themselves in the same boat as the Hip Cats that smoked pot in the 20′s… see below

      Patrick Trueman, a former head of the Justice Department’s Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section and now the head of Morality in Media, told the conservative Daily Caller that he was quietly promised that fighting porn will be a top priority in a Romney White House.

      Trueman said he and another anti-porn prosecutor from the 1980s Justice Department, Bob Flores, met earlier this year with Alex Wong, Romney’s foreign and legal policy director..

      “Wong assured us that Romney is very concerned with this, and that if he’s elected these laws will be enforced,” Trueman told the website. ”They promised to vigorously enforce federal adult obscenity laws.”
